Today a friend of mine did something that many people might have thought was impossible and in doing so has shown just how much excuses are keeping people from moving ahead. He got a full-time job with benefits.
Wow (in a deflated tone) some people may be saying. But there’s more He did it as a man of a certain age. Yes, he’s not in his 20s, 30s, or 40s. He is over 50 and got a job.
Now a jeanie didn’t appear and grant him the wish of exchanging the independent contractor life with that of an employee (with benefits). The path was filled with hard work, perseverance, faith, and excuses. But he didn’t let the excuses get in the way.
No more, “I’m to old,” excuse.
No more, “There aren’t any jobs in my field, ” excuse.
No more, ” There aren’t any jobs in my geographical location,” excuse.
No more, “I don’t have the skills,” excuse.
No more whatever excuses you’ve been using.
If you dream it, you can do it.
I read somewhere that “We are all put into the world to do great things and lead great lives.”
Stop letting you excuses keep you from your great life.
